10 QUIT CABINET Reports Are That Quarrel With Andrew Will Cause His i Retirement. Washington. D. C. J'.ily 7.?Reports In the Treasury Department bay that. Secretary of tho Troaaury MacVeagh would rju't the Cabinet in November as the result of tho row with As ?slstant Secretary Andrew. This row resulted la Dr. Andrew resigning upjn request of the President.' The reports started since the secretary made hut denial on Friday. It Is generally believed that the re? luctance of the President to have a i ablhet spilt on the eve of a presi? dential campaign will force him to adhere to his asserted position not to report the case nt all. either at tho request of some of his political friends nt the Capitol, who are stanch trends of Dr. Andrew, or of his Cabinet. Sorno of tho.??- fi lends?Senators Dodge and Crane, of Massachusetts, and Senator Root, of New York?are not willing to let the matter drop. These Senators desire nothing moro than to get the scalp of the Secre? tary of the Treasury, who. they .say, la a disturbing element in the Cabinet administration. H will be recalled thut Senator Crane was one of tho closer advisers of the President wno advised tho President to ' tire" Post master-General Hitchcock and whose determination "to got Hitchcock" led to tho break between th.- President and his Postmaster-General, While the President will do his ut? most to close down the controversy between Secretary MacVeagh and A. l'lati Andrew. !t Is expected that he will demand Of the bureau and di? vision chiefs who were mentioned by I >r. Andrew In his caustic letter to Secretary MacVeagh that they either resign or declare allegiance to Secre? tary MacVeagh. Some, of tho Presi? dent's friends fear that if he takes this step he will reopen the whole fuss. According to reports, the P.-efl deht dots not thir.k so. None of the officials mentlonrd 'n Dr. Andrew's letter would discuss the matter. All am here w'th tho ex Oeption of Comptroller of tho Cur? rency Murray.

"When I drank coffee I often had sick headaches, nervousness and biliousness much of the time: but about two years ago I went to visit a friend and got in the habit r,f drinking Postum. "1 have never touched coffee since, and the result has been that I am now en? tirely well of all my stomach and nervous trouble. (Tea contains caffeine, the same drui; found in coffee.) "My mother was just the same way. We all drink Postum now, and have not had any coffee in the house for two years, and we all arc well. "A neighbor of mine, a great coffee drinker, was troubled witli pains in her side for years, and was an invalid. She was not able to do her work, and could not even mend clothes or do anything at all where she would .have to bend forward. If she tried to do a little hard work she would get such pain- that she would have to lie down for the rest of the day. "1 persuaded her at ia-t to stop drink? ing coffee and try Postum, and she did so, and she has used Postum ever since; the result has been that she can do her work, can sit for a whole day and mend and can sew on the machine, and she never feels the least bit of pain in her side. In fact, she has got well, and it shows coffee was the cause of the whole trouble. "I could also tell you about several other neighbors who have been benefited by quitting coffee and using Postum in its piace." Name given by Postum Co., Battle Creek, Mich.

ALDERMAN PRAISES WILSON Iiis Victory Marks Return to Constructive Things, Declares Smith. [Special to The Times-Dispatch.] Charlottesvllle, Va., July 7?"Wood.; row Wilson's nomination marks a new era in the educational an,i cultural as well as the political developraelii of tho country." said President Edwin A. Al? derman, of tho University ot Virginia, In an address before the summer school of that Institution. "The Democratic party neods its best man to lead at . this time; it neods a man who knows things before he does them, rather than acting first -ind thinking after? wards; a man who would fight for an Idea with Iron In his blood. That sort of man has been chosen?a man of cul- , ture. of tine breeding, lofty training; a new man, to be sure; an untried' man, to b'- sure, but a man who has duno no cheap bickering In the past and Who has a clean record behind him. "I predict that In another eight years thero will be no more national conventions of the cha.-ucttr I have just witnessed, Sjuch scenes will have become a thing of the past and written of as one of the pucuiiar features of the present-day method of politics. The nomination will come through presidential primaries, paid for out of the government treasury, and the con- ; vention that names the nominee will' be av solemn as a college of cardinals ?letting a Pope. "Bryan was a curious figure at tho '.onv<ntlon. To me he was not always a heroic one, but there is no gainsaying that his personality dominated the con- i vention and dictated the course event- j ually taken by too convention, which view is shared in, I notice, by Mr. I ? 'lark. "When I saw those painted lltho graphs of Wilson and Underwood tosred'; about In tho stormy demonstrations . that followed the. placing of their names before tho convention, 1 thought, they were t?'o of the choicest offerings ? of chat whole 1.00ft delegates?two young Southerners, both sons of the University of Virginia.'" iletum to Constructive Things, That the nomination of Woodrow J Wilson represents the effort by the | people again to select such types of I men as .lefferson and Madison Is the opinion of Dr. Charles Alphonso Smith. : Edgar Allan Poe professor of English! In the University of Virginia. Mora than this. Dr. Smith said it represents J the fact that the people are coming to appreciate that modern education and Its foremost champion are not theo? retical merely, but practical and effi? cient. He said It was Imperative that I the adherents of Wilson Bee to it that he Is not misrepresented. "The nomination of Woodrow Wilson means a realization on the part of the people of the fact that the scholar in politics lias come to s.lay. The time, was." ite snid. "when the people looked upon scholarship as Impractical and upon the scholar as a mere theorlzer. Now they realize that there Is nothing between scholarship and efficiency. For twenty years the colleges and untversi ties have been turning out practical men. which the public nan been pretty Slow to realize. The obi conception was that a scholar Is a were book man. That is not true. Tho modern scholar is nothing if not practical and effi? cient." Dr. Smith hoped the distinction which had been drawn by people In the past has gone. Ho said it was with keen gratification that the Democratic party was so n.utck to realize that the best type of scholar of to-day is a man of efficiency. He said the old antagonism by tiie people for the educated goes back to the Middle Ages, a time of lights between the gownsmen and townsmen. "We've reached the stage now," said he, "In which the modern school is viewed very differently when It turns out clear-headed and practical men. Woodrow Wilson l.s the finest type in the country of the scholar, not only of the scholar, but of the practical man. and I think the country is about to realize a new era. It marks, I hope, for the Democratic party a return of the Jefferson and Madison type. This marks the return to big constructive* tilings."

Hotel Likely to Include It Among Other Improvements Dur? ing Summer Season. Among other extensive Improvements now under way at thu Jefferson Hotel, the management has under advisement the open'ng of a lavishly appointed roof garden, to be located on top of tiie Franklin Street wing. Willie none of the executive officers of the hotel was willing yesterday to admit that tho roof garden plan had been detl nitely : >ptsd. it was stated that the management has it under serious con? sideration, and that Its installation at an early date was on the program. "It may surprise most people to know that the Jefferson had a roof garden seventeen years 'ago", said Cashier Hunter McO. Bigger, last night. "Un? less I am mistaken this hotol was the first one In the South to havo ona. It was located on the roof of tho Frank? lin Street wing and ran into tho natu? ral arbors formed by tho towers. We -van hod vaudoville on tho roof long heforo there was sueh a tiling as a vaudeville theater (n Richmond. Some of the biggest artists In the country played In our nightly performances." Garden la nalcony Form,. The Jefferson roof garden. If pro lecterd plans are carried out, will dif? fer somewhat from the rec.tansular American type and approach more nearly to the balcony garden of a num? ber of hotels in Europe. In Its pre? sent form the roof on the Franklin Street wing of the hotol has a large rectangular central floor space, with alcoves on the same level leading Into the towers at each of the Franklin Street comers. The central section of the garden commands a tine view of the West End residential section, while the alcoves pe.rm.lts sweeping views of most of the olty. T'U FWiKi? tr.'r ? n af fi^-e. i-* ^ Its nrosont form, as was pointed out. yesterday, would lend itself admirably to decoration and embellishment with plants and flowers. The floor space is ample for a number of tables, and th.> whole garden could be arranged with little alteration of the present ground plan. The projected roof garden. It was ex? plained, would be conducted in accord? ance with the high standard ?et by tho hotel In Its other departments. It would aim to attract the highest class of pat? ronage and to this end would Impose certain well-defined restrictions upon all v'sltors. If the garden is Installed, it Is likely that the plan of admission by ticKet as followed by a number of the leading hotels in the North, would be adopted Under this plan there would be no access to the roof directly ^from the street, but visitors would llrst have to be supplied with tickets 1 of admission ;tt tho desk.
